Tony was a good husband and a good father to his 3 1/2 year old daughter Alyssa and his 7 month old son Ethan. All his clients tell me how he was a good person and how he built good friendships with them. He had a good heart and also a brilliant head. He will be very missed by his family.

  Scott Rohner

Date of Birth: March 23, 1979
Position: Trader on the Foreign Exchange


Scott only lived to be 22 years old, but he accomplished more than most people accomplish in a lifetime. He grew up in a loving family, the fifth of six children, in River Edge, New Jersey. He attended River Dell High School, where he was the captain of the football and basketball teams, and later played both sports at Hobart College, where he majored in economics and minored in Americans Studies. He was an exceptional son, brother, cousin, nephew, grandson and loyal friend.

Scott loved life, and experienced more than many people do, because he had such a positive attitude. If you met Scott, you would be taken by his trusting eyes and warm smile. He chose to see the good in people. He never judged people, but respected them for their beliefs. He was smart, sensitive, funny, athletic and genuine. He was unselfish and compassionate. Everyone who met him admired and loved him because of his warm spirit and kindness.

He had a much to live for, and would have made great contributions to this world. He was far from ordinary, as everyone said who knew him. Even though he was only 22 when he died, he lived more, loved more and experienced more than many can say they have. He brought so much joy into our lives; it is hard to imagine that we can go on without him. Our hearts ache, but when we think of Scott, and his exceptional life, we smile.

  Elvin Romero

Date of Birth: January 26, 1967
Department: International Equities
Position: Vice President

La vida te da sorpresas, sorpresas te da la vida…who knows what tomorrow will bring? Simple phrases that became my husband’s philosophy on life. Live each day to the fullest and enjoy it to the end. How glad I am that he felt that way and lived that way, for in his 34 years, he was a man who dreamt his dreams-and then made them come true. Long ago he dreamt of working on Wall Street and becoming a trader, and he did. He dreamt of falling in love and having a family, and he did. More recently, he dreamt of putting in an inground pool in our yard and swimming with Gabriella and Alexander, and he did. He dreamt of seeing Gabi start kindergarten with her head held high, and she did. Since he was a boy, he dreamt of owning a sports car, and all of those who knew him well knew he got that 2001 silver Corvette Z06. Elvin was a dreamer. He was also a proud, loving father…a dedicated son, brother, uncle, nephew and cousin…a devoted husband. He was and always will be my best friend, my soulmate. He taught each of us in his life a valuable lesson whether family, friend or simple acquaintance. Do whatever it takes to be happy in this life. His legacy lives on in all those who were touched by his magic and by his kindness. May we never forget to stop and appreciate the beauty that is each new day. Te quiero con todo mi corazon, mi amor.

  Angela Rosario

Date of Birth: November 2, 1973
Position: Traders/Broker’s Assistant, TradeSpark

Angela, our Angel

Angela Rosario was born on November 2, 1973, in New York City. She resided in the Lower East Side of Manhattan throughout her life. Angela attended Bellevue Day Care, P.S. 134, JHS 56, and graduated from Murray Bergtraum High School in June of 1991.

Angela always realized the importance and the need to further her education. In order to support her educational goals, she held several full time positions and attended school in the evenings. In June of 1999, Angela received her Associate of Arts Degree from Borough of Manhattan Community College. She was in the process of pursuing a Bachelor of Arts Degree, majoring in Psychology, at Hunter College.

As any teenager, Angela was ecstatic to commence on her working career. At the age of sixteen, she proudly accepted her first job at a summer youth program. Upon her high school graduation, she was hired by Nynex and later worked for Eurobrokers. Ultimately, she landed a position at Cantor Fitzgerald in 1997.

Angela had a need, a desire to help and care for others. Her desire to help people came naturally, and it was no surprise when she decided to major in Psychology. Many people were attracted to her inner beauty and magical way of making them feel special. She hoped to someday reciprocate her gift of love and kindness by professionally helping people in need.

Among her goal in life, Angela wanted more than anything to continue her educational career and relocate her mother from the Lower East Side to a house of her own in the suburbs.

Angela was fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to pursue one of her many dreams – to travel. She often vacationed with her friends or family members. She particularly enjoyed traveling to different islands.

  Sheryl Rosner Rosenbaum

Date of Birth: March 2, 1968
Position: US Government

A light has gone out of our lives, but she will never be forgotten. Sheryl shone as she entered all our lives. When she walked into a room with her smile, and confidence, everyone there knew her and would remember her.
As a child who could forget her energy, she was non-stop motion,
Always asking, always wanting to know, always getting into everything, but always there with hugs, kisses and smiles. She learned early on how to handle her brothers, Marc and David, making willing slaves out of them. She was magical and had everyone she knew in her power. No parent could have been prouder of the young woman she grew into, confident, bright, level headed, caring and very very loving. We are proud of everything she achieved, of the friends she made and the kind of friend she was to them, of the son she brought into our family and the grandchildren, Hannah and Sam, they gave to us.
Sheryl was our equalizer, our strength, our child and our friend. She was the thread that pulled us into a tight, loving and giving family. We were blessed to have her in our lives, if only for 33 years. We will always love, adore and miss her.

  Lloyd Rosenberg

Date of Birth: December 11, 1969
Department: High Yield
Position: Bond Broker

Lloyd Rosenberg, 31, was raised in Sheepshead Bay Brooklyn, before moving to Staten Island. We met at Crazy Eddie’s where we both worked. He graduated from Sheepshead Bay High School in 1987 and began working for Cantor Fitzgerald in 1988. We were married in 1992 and made our home in Morganville New Jersey with our three daughters, Samantha, Kaylee and Alyssa.
Two weeks before the tragic events of September 11th, we were fortunate enough to spend a weekend away alone together. Something we hadn’t done in over five years. He said to me, “Glenn, I can’t believe we’ve been together more than half of my life.” We talked and imagined what the next half would be like.
Lloyd was kind and generous; he never said a bad word about anyone he knew. Recently I’ve come to find out that in business he was the same.
Lloyd leaves behind a beautiful legacy. In Samantha, you can’t help but notice his gestures and his personality. In Kaylee, it’s like looking into his eyes and seeing his happy spirit. In Alyssa you can see his face. We use to joke all the time that they were twins separated by 31 years. To me, he gave his heart, and I will carry it with me forever.
Lloyd’s passion was being a “daddy.” His girls were his pride and joy. I will forever miss the Saturday mornings when I would sneak downstairs and watch him reading them a book, or playing “horsie.”
We, his family, will pray for peace so that his children, and all the other children can grow up without fear. To be able to live the life, full of joy and happiness, that Lloyd wanted them to live. Always and Forever, Glenna, Samantha, Kaylee and Alyssa.

  Andrew I Rosenblum

Date of Birth: August 20, 1959
Department: Preferred Stock
Position: Vice President

Andrew graduated SUNY Binghamton with a B.A. in Political Science in 1978. He attended Pace University School of Law and received his J.D. in 1981. He practiced law for several years before embarking on a new career on Wall Street. On his first day he met James Smith and together they remained friends and partners to the end. Andrew and his wife Jill raised their two sons, Jordan, 14, and Kyle, 11 in Rockville Centre. He was extraordinarily philanthropic and donated to innumerable charities that addressed a wide range of causes. Andrew took time out to share hi time and expertise with students from Southside High School in a mentoring program as well as coaching students in trial skills both in Rockville Centre’s youth court and Pace University’s Moot Court Program. He was also an avid golfer and excellent tennis player. Andrew’s encouragement of education has been recognized by his family members who have established the Andrew Rosenblum Memorial Trust Fund, which will provide an annual scholarship to a deserving high school student. At his memorial service, held September 16, 2001 at Temple B’nai Shalom in Rockville Centre, hundreds gathered to say goodbye to Andrew and to hear these words:
“A famous Rabbi sent his disciples to learn what was the essential characteristic a person must possess to have a satisfying, fulfilling life. They came back with various answers, one said, ‘a good eye.’ One said, ‘a good friend.’ A third said ‘ a good neighbor.’ Another ‘a good heart.’ Any one of these qualities would suffice as the foundations of a good life. Our Andy possessed all of them.”

  Richard Rosenthal

Date of Birth: May 17, 1951
Department: Finance
Position: Vice President

Richard D. Rosenthal, 50 years old, lived in Fair Lawn, NJ with his wife, Loren, and two sons, Evan 18, and Seth, 14. He was vice-president of finance at Cantor Fitzgerald for the past 6 months.
Richard was a man with his values in the right place. Family, friends and community were of the utmost importance to him. He was incredibly devoted to his wife, children and parents. Richard and his wife made a great team dealing with their elder son’s Familial Dysautonomia, a serious genetic disease, but he always made the time to volunteer where he was needed. Richard served as the treasurer of the Dysautonomia Foundation for 15 years and was treasurer of the Fair Lawn Jewish Center for 4 years.
Richard was not a daredevil, but he did have a childlike adventurous streak. His nieces called him a man-kid because they saw his zest for life first-hand. He had a wonderful sense of humor prompting the planner for his 40th birthday party to utilize his favorite childhood TV show, “The Three Stooges” for a theme. For his 50th birthday party last May, his sister, Audrey Model, toasted her brother, saying she hoped he would always remain a man-kid. Richard did so, particularly on family vacations with his family. Last summer he coaxed his wife into trying white-water rafting on an Alaskan cruise and this past summer, Richard and his son, Seth, went parasailing in Ocean City, NJ.
Richard further showed his enthusiasm for life when he danced. He was a person that everybody would notice at his party, because he danced that well. In fact, he met his wife at a school dance when she was 14 and he was 17. They would have been married for 24 years.

  Michael Rothberg

Date of Birth: May 27, 1962
Department: Portfolio Trading
Position: Managing Director

Mike loved his work at Cantor Fitzgerald and all the people around him were like family. Every summer he had a big theme party at his home in Old Greenwich, CT where he invited many of his Cantor friends as well as his close friends because he considered them all family.

He enjoyed Cantor so much that he brought his two cousins, Kurt and Derek, to work, help and learn on the trading desk. Derek even wrote an essay for college admission about working on the desk and thinking it might be his future.

Mike enjoyed helping everybody. He helped his friends start businesses, even his sister Rhonda. He even hosted his friends, Chris and Beth’s wedding at his home. All this was done quietly and without expecting any recognition. Mike enjoyed skiing, boating, running and was an avid spinner. Fun and friends went together. Mike was active in charity work such as raising money for Multiple Sclerosis in a bike-a-thon. He also helped to raise money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

Our last and fondest memory was this past July when we spent two weeks in Chatham, MA. On Cape Cod with Michael. The family was constantly together, along with Michael’s closest friends, enjoying the summer activities. This was the first time he had taken two weeks vacation and it was our last time together.

We miss you and will always love you, Michael.
